    How many of you use a GFI plug when you clean a drain

    we have to use one all the time and there were a lot of times i know when it tripped the GFI i would have gotten a good shock if i did not use one

    Re: Safety

    all the newer drain cleaning tools come with a gfi.

    even my newer core drilling drills have a gfi with an auto non-restart. this way if the power is lost, it won't restart without pushing the gfi.

      110V never hurt me; just woke me up when I should have been paying attn anyway. I kind of enjoy a little 60hz mambo; leaves me all tingly and feeling alive.
      This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

            I replaced the cords on all of my drain equipment when I got it, the previous service guy had cut them all out of the way. I'm not sharing a puddle with a power cord without a gfci
            No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

              We run GFI cords on anything that doesn't have a GFI.

                Charging less does not mean more call volume it just means you have to work harder to reach your goals.
